Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang
I was sort of mixed on the film The Brothers Bloom, but I really loved Rinko Kikuchi's stylish and quirky character, Bang Bang.
Bang Bang is a demolition expert and all-around cool girl. She even looks good in goggles.
A little trivia for you--in the movie, Rinko speaks only three words (aside from when she
sings in Japanese at the end). But this was not the first non-speaking role for Rinko.
Previously, she played a heartbreaking deaf-mute teenage girl in the film Babel. And for her performance, she became the first Japanese actress to be nominated for an Oscar in 50 years!
